Requesting Service

Obtaining OPSCAN Forms

Standard optical scan forms (200 items with 5 possible responses; 120 items with 10 possible answers) may be obtained at the VUIT Operations Center (Hill Center Room 140). If not completed in advance, you will need to complete a Scan Sheet Acquisition Request  form.

Scanning OPSCAN Forms

Without special arrangement, we will scan forms obtained from us (200 items with 5 possible responses; 120 items with 10 possible answers). Scan results will by default be uploaded to Vanderbilt's  Box Collaboration Tool , but results can be printed upon request. If not completed in advance, you will need to complete a Scan Sheet Scoring Request form upon drop-off of sheets to be scanned. All scan sheets must be organized where they are in the same order and face the same direction. A key sheet must be provided. A key is identified by bubbling in the Identification Number of a scan sheet with the following: 0000000001.

With special arrangement, we will scan forms designed for your specific needs. Design must be done by National Computer Systems (Pearson) in collaboration with the VUIT Operation Center.
